The Plaza Hotel's iconic, swanky venue for high-end breakfast, afternoon tea & evening cocktails.- Google
"...came here for "high tea" and the tea and snacks/pastries they bring out..."

Enjoying tea is one of my favorite activities. While this location is steeped in history, such as a frequent place for Frank Sinatra, it's not as grand as other tea establishments (e.g., Palace Hotel of SF). Plus, it's in the center of the hotel, so passersby can watch you eat.

Afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel is probably the biggest tourist trap in NYC. My advice is to avoid at all cost! Ordered the Fitzergerald and New Yorker afternoon tea sets - frankly they are very similar. None of the sandwiches and sweet taste above average. They charge you $20 each person to share a set. Tea is also mediocre. Service is rather poor - No one came to check up on us. The server only came to rush us out of the place as they want to close. It's a shame how disappointing the afternoon tea is given how beautiful the venue is and how much you pay. I'd suggest just walk in to check out the hotel, then get afternoon tea somewhere else.

I am from Beverly Hills and came here on my NYC trip last January, expecting something similar to Spago or the Wilshire. Not even close. It has clearly become a tourist trap, so my waiter barely spoke English and didn't have a clue what he was doing. Our empty bread basket sat on the table with our butter knives and bread plates merely pushed aside when our entrees arrived. I had to request for the table to be crumbed. The food was cold, and only the appetizer was exceptionally tasty. They also strangely pushed drinks the entire meal and could not stand for me to only want water, apparently. For these prices and the fame the Plaza has earned for its exceptional treatment, I expect a full staff of competent servers well-trained in being attentive and courteous, and for them to understand the relationship between customer and server at this calibre is different from the rest of the world.

A wonderful place to go for tea or brunch in New York City. A very special experience for a child.

Watch Out. 7 members of our family went to Tea. Food was OK. Service was good. The menu offers the option of champagne for $22.00. The menu does not state that this is for the First glass or A glass. But it is! The bill came with an additional $352 for 16 Additional Champagne. Those friendly 'top-offs' The manager came to explain that we were hicks and do not know how to read. Very unfriendly and condescending. They also will not return my phone calls

This is probably because I'm a not a girl and have dreamed of eating here, but I had some trouble understanding what was so great about this place. I came here for "high tea" and the tea and snacks/pastries they bring out were all top-notch, but the price is absurd. There was nothing I ate that really stood out. I can see how for a ladies afternoon out, this might be fun, but I guess it's just not for me.

Taking in afternoon tea at The Palm Court is one of the classic things on any New York 'to do' list. Take a step back in time & enjoy the fabulous decor, great service and even spot some celebrities.

Lots of places for afternoon tea in the city, but this is the classic.
